Ornish Site: Saline Heart Group

Health Challenges: Back surgeries, broken bones, open heart surgery.

Greatest Motivation: My motivation is that I want to feel better. I want to get out more and do things with family and friends. I would like to go places and see new and old things.

My story begins when I was at my lowest point. I worked for 33 years, working several different shifts 6 to 7 days a week, never getting used to any of the shifts. I have had trouble with my back for the past 50 years. I have suffered from 8 back surgeries, a broken neck, broken leg, and broken fingers. I have learned a lot about my family and myself during the time when I had open-heart surgery.

The team helped me open up and express my feelings

I would tell anyone who is considering the Ornish Lifestyle Medicine program to read and find out what it is all about. I would say to them, get into the program if possible and never look back. The program will change your well-being and life for the better. No pain, no gain!

The impact of the program and team has changed my life for the better. The Ornish Lifestyle Medicine Program has shown me how to respect the opinions of others. The program has also made me feel better about myself. I used to sit back and not take part in conversations with family and friends. The team helped me open up and express my feelings, ideas and thoughts.

My motivation is that I want to feel better. I want to get out more and do things with family and friends. I would like to go places and see new and old things. I’m glad my heart doctor thought it would be helpful to do the program. Thanks to the team, program, and new friends. I will never forget you. Go, go, go!
